This should make for an interesting weekend.
Surely, the notorious Philadelphia fans are going to have something special for Mr. Bonds. The only question is how horrible the reception will be. We’re guessing pretty horrible.
A writer from California thinks it’s an incredibly appropriate ending:
"As the week plays out - two home games against San Diego, two on the road at Milwaukee and three to end the week at Philadelphia - the very real possibility exists that one of those home runs [714 or 715] will be struck in Philadelphia, and if that doesn't smack of a perfect ending, I don't know what does...We’re going to go out on a limb here and say this guy’s right. In fact, we’re going to try to go to all the games this weekend because, frankly, we don’t want to miss the historic occasion in which Philadelphia fans set the bar even lower.
Who better, then, to offer the official word on Bonds' mark than the people who once booed Santa Claus?
Terrell Owens will get a warmer reception when he returns with the Cowboys in October than Bonds can expect should he hit his Ruthian shot in Philadelphia."
